Siemens PLM Software Expands at Toyota for its Vehicle Safety

Nuremberg, Germany- Business Wire India 
Use of Teamcenter software to be expanded at development sites of Toyota
Originally deployed in 2013 to comply with the ISO 26262 safety standard 
Toyota Motor Corporation has expanded its vehicle safety information management
system based on Siemens' Teamcenter® software.  The system has been in use
since January 2013 as part of a comprehensive initiative to produce safe
vehicles for its customers. Teamcenter was selected based on the proven track
record of its technology and its widespread usage throughout the global
manufacturing industry. 
Market requirements regarding safety compliance for vehicles are constantly
increasing. In 2011, the International Safety Organization (ISO) published the
ISO 26262 Functional Safety standard which defines functional safety for
automotive equipment applicable throughout the lifecycle of all automotive
electronic and electrical systems. In order to ensure compliance with ISO 26262,
Toyota decided to implement a new safety information management system based on
PLM that would standardize processes across multiple divisions.   
After evaluating several PLM software systems, Toyota selected Teamcenter.
Toyota cited the widespread adoption of Teamcenter by the global manufacturing
industry and Siemens' open policy for PLM technology as important factors in its
decision. Toyota's successful deployment of Teamcenter has allowed it to enhance
collaboration between multiple divisions and significantly improve traceability
management. This facilitates its ability to comply with functional safety
“We are extremely proud to have earned the confidence of Toyota  for such an
important global initiative,” said Chuck Grindstaff, president and CEO of
Siemens PLM Software. “As the leading supplier of PLM software to the auto
industry, Siemens takes its commitment to customer success very seriously. We
are confident it will continue to provide the right information, in the right
place, and at the right time, to help Toyota continue to make smart decisions
throughout vehicle development.”
